    Another example of the Saudi conundrum. The US and Saudi Arabia are intrinsic enemies, but each finds the other an invaluable ally.

    Someone somewhere could also consume less oil as well.

    This is not an Iran story. This is a China story.

    The noose tightens until Iran cuts a deal with China on terms very favorable to China.

    China is waging trade wars, and it looks like they’re winning them handily.

    Do we have that sort of competence or strategic thought in our government? I haven’t seen it, if there is.

  • Amen to all the above.

    And re Jim.’s question, I think the most plausible answer is “No.”
